Yes, the cake should be on a cake drum or cake boards covered with fancy foil. At least , that is what i do. I usually buy the sturdy cake drums. I find that wiltons is not that sturdy. Global sugar art would have what you need and other on line stores. hth
I agree with icer101 - a cake drum would be much more appropriate. You could band the sides of the cake drum with some coordinated coloured ribbon - for a more professional finish. Hope this helps!
Thank you for your repleis
AIf this is what I think it is, it is styrofoam wrapped to look like antique metal. I just bought one to do my cousins wedding too lol. My advice is to be very careful wit h imprinting on the drum. The men who carried the cake from the kitchen to the dining room left big ol thumbprints sunk into it. It wasn't very noticeable to most but I could tell because I knew what it was.
AI was just going to ask about the pedestal, it's adorable. But it's styrofoam?!
I always use foam core instead of the cardboard circles (or squares...) and some sort of base or drum as well. Especially for a stacked cake, they can get really heavy and you need something sturdy for transportation as well as something nice and clean for that professional finish.
ANo! No! No! Personally, i think a cake frum on a stand looks awful & is unnecessary. Cake goes on a board then right on top of the stand.
On a very rare occasion, the cake board is part of the design. In that case, it too is decorated never jus silver or whatever.
AI think she intends to use this instead or a stand. But idk
